I want to double check that I understand Fisheye. Is it a web-based view to a git repository or is it a git repository as well? We currently have a git repository and have no need to migrate it, but we do have a need to view the contents of our repository in web based format. Is this ok?
FishEye is a revision-control browser and search engine not a repository by itself. You can use it to view the contents of your existing git repository.
If you want to browse your git repository but also manage it, you could try Stash, the new Atlassian product which focuses on Git.
There is no full feature parity between Stash and Fisheye. For example, Fisheye is more integrated with Crucible (code review tool by Atlassian). In my opinion, Stash aims to be like Github Enterprise.
From Stash FAQ:
A: We tried to build Git repository management into FishEye, and thought we could make it work. In FishEye 2.7 we added basic capabilities to host and manage Git repositories within FishEye. However, as we were planning future releases, we realized that the architecture of FishEye, built to index, browse and search across various SCMs, was not adequate for a DVCS repository management tool.
Therefore we have made the decision to build a new product, with a clear focus: hosting and managing Git repositories. Instead of a "Jack of all trades", we will have two products that are focused on 2 very different tasks:
I am using No Authentication and the Authenitcation style since the Repro Location doesn't like the other styles. Any suggestions? Thanks!
I fixed the problems with our version of git on the server, but now seeing connection refused. We are using No authentication. Any suggestions?
Error testing connection.

I got it to work on Fisheye. The webserver needed to run as the person who has access to the git repository in order to gain access. However, I am having a problem speaking to the remote repository on Bamboo. Bamboo is running as a person as Fisheye, which is working, but this is the error I am receiving
Error encountered while triggering manual build: com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.RepositoryException: Failed to open transport for 'file:///SERVER/PATH/TO/REPO'.
Plan 'TEST' did not start
Can I get more information as to why this is failing? I am looking at the logs and I am not seeing why this is a problem.
